Indusrialisation and Society provides an essential introduction to the effects of industrialisation on British society, from Queen Victoria's reign to the birth of the welfare state in the 1940s. This book deals with the remarkable social consequences of the industrial revolution, as Britain changed into an urban society based on industry. As the first nation to undergo an industrial revolution, Britain was also the first to deal with the unprecedented social problems of rapid urbanisation combined with an unparalleled growth in population. Industrialisation and Society looks at contemporary ways in which the government and ordinary people tried to cope with these new pressures, and studies their reactions to the unforseen consequences of the steam revolution. In particular, this indispensable book considers: * the Victorian inheritance * Edwardian England and the Liberal reforms * the two world wars * the Welfare State.
The book explores the vital role played by the financial service industries in enabling the poor to consume over the last hundred and fifty years. Spending requires means, but these industries offered something else as well – they offered practical marketing devices that captured, captivated and enticed poor consumers. Consumption and consumer markets depend on such devices but their role has been poorly understood both in the social sciences and in business studies and marketing. While the analysis of consumption and markets has been carved up between academics and practitioners who have been interested in either their social and cultural life or their economic and commercial organisation, consumption continues to be driven by their combination. Devising consumption requires practical mixtures of commerce and art whether the product is an insurance policy or the next gadget in the internet of things . By making the case for a pragmatic understanding of how ordinary, everyday consumption is orchestrated, the book offers an alternative to orthodox approaches, which should appeal to interdisciplinary audiences interested in questions about how markets work and why it matters.
This is an absorbing collection of original essays contributed in honour of Professor Chris Wrigley, one of the leading figures in the study of British labour history and former President of The Historical Association. It focuses on a range of historical topics on two main themes: labour politics and working-class lives. The collection reflects Wrigley's interests in liberal and labour politics, industrial relations, trade unions and industrial systems. The essays cover a wide period from late Victorian and Edwardian politics to recent times in Britain. In the first part of the volume, two studies of the careers of the radical George Howell and the Liberal Chief Whip Herbert Gladstone demonstrate how their political careers helped to determine the way in which the Labour movement would develop in the late nineteenth century and the early twentieth century. Other essays explore the long-term relationship between trade unions and Labour politics, as well as the socialist and progressive aftermath following the second Labour government's demise in 1931 seen through studies of the Independent Labour Party and the development of the Progressive League. The essays in the second half of the volume on working-class lives and culture raise a number of significant issues. Was working-class culture less organised in Britain than in Germany? How did the world of female clerkship develop? What part did the next generation of George and Bessie Lansbury's family contribute to twentieth-century politics? Wrigley's work has primarily focused upon the political process in Britain in modern times and reflects his long-standing interest in political parties, prominent political figures, and the everyday lives of those represented in the Labour Party and the broader Labour movement. This volume is dedicated to a similar range of historical questions and the essentially pragmatic approach of Wrigley in making the study of history accessible to a wider audience in Britain and beyond.
"Warum kommt es in England im 19. Jahrhundert zu keiner Revolution? Historiker verbinden die auffällige Stabilität der englischen Gesellschaft mit einem doppelten Problem: Schon sehr früh gab es in England eine Arbeiterbewegung, die gemeinsam mit den Liberalen Reformen forderte und auch revolutionäre Vorstellungen entwickelte. Trotz einer nach 1815 scheinbar stark radikalisierten Bevölkerung blieb eine Revolution aber aus, und eine Arbeiterpartei entstand in England später als in anderen europäischen Staaten. Seit 20 Jahren wird dieser Widerspruch üblicherweise mit der Komplexität sozialer und politischer Identitätsbildung innerhalb der Unterschichten erklärt. Verwiesen wird auf die lange dominante Tradition des englischen Liberalismus und Radikalismus, der auch die Reformbewegungen der Arbeiterschaft prägte. Mit dem vorliegenden Buch müssen solche Erklärungen erweitert werden. Es beschreibt eine bisher ignorierte lange Tradition des Konservatismus, die erhebliche Teile der englischen Unterschichten beeinflusste und zur Stabilität der englischen Gesellschaft beitrug. Dieser "Konservatismus von unten" kreiste um die Popularität der Monarchie, einem loyalistischen Patriotismus und ein protestantisches Selbstverständnis. Damit verbunden waren antikatholische Haltungen und ein paternalistisches Ideal von sozialer Gerechtigkeit, das einen Ausgleich zwischen sozialen Eliten und Unterschichten ermöglichte. In einer vergleichenden Lokalstudie werden bekannte Phänomene wie antikatholische Ausschreitungen neu interpretiert und bisher kaum erforschte Entwicklungen wie die frühen konservativen Arbeitervereine und Feiern im Umfeld der Monarchie untersucht, um das Bild der politischen Vorstellungen innerhalb der englischen Unterschichten um eine konservative Dimension zu erweitern."--Publisher's website.
In seiner unvollendeten Novelle aus dem Jahre 1895 schafft der englische Zeichner und Dichter Aubrey Beardsley eine erotische Phantasie, in deren Mittelpunkt die Legende von Tannhäuser und Venus steht. Seinerzeit von vielen Kritikern als frivoler Ausbruch der Dekadenz abgelehnt, gilt Beardsleys Werk heute als Beispiel für die reiche Erzählkunst des Fin de sicècle. Nachdruck der deutschen Übersetzung von 1909.
